Statement by Yahoo:
“While Yahoo Answers was once an essential part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as our members’ needs have changed. That’s why we’ve decided to move our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that serve our members better and fulfill Yahoo’s promise to deliver top-notch reliable content.
As of April 20th, you will no longer be able to post new questions or answers. However, you will be able to view questions and answers posted until May 4th. The site will be closed on May 4th. If you would like to download a copy of your questions and responses, you can do so by signing in to your Privacy dashboard and requesting a download.
You will be able to do this (download data) until June 30, 2021, after which your Yahoo Answers data will be securely deleted and no longer available. Closing Yahoo Answers will not affect your Yahoo account or other Yahoo services. “
